Lot Essay

The present work, is based on a print after Marten van Heemskerck from the Wonders of the World series recalls his extensive landscapes of the 1560s. (see, for example, Christ at the sea of Tiberias, 1567, in the Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, Inv. no. 952).

We are grateful to Dr. Ilja Veldman who has seen the painting in the original, for her assistance in cataloguing this lot.
